Siemens shows off 360 megabit mobile data

Sep 14 2004 - 01:55 PM ET | Data, Siemens
Siemens showed off new wireless technology at the Mobile Internet 2010 forum that allows data to move across at up to 360 megabits per second. That's about 150 times faster than most cable modems. bq. To make the high-frequency signals more resistant to interference, Siemens deploys orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM). Multiplexing procedures specify how a transmission medium can be used several fold, for example by multiple users at the same time. Orthogonal frequency multiplexing is a special form of frequency multiplexing with which signals are split over different, closely adjacent carrier frequencies Siemens believes 100 megabits per second will be the standard for mobile devices in 10 years.
